NEWS / Senate bill requires notaries be legal residents

Notary publics would have to prove they are legal U.S. residents under a bill approved Tuesday by the state Senate.

SB 50, which passed 55-0, is designed to cut into the document fraud that allows illegal immigrants to gain public benefits in Georgia, said Sen. John Douglas (R-Social Circle), sponsor of the bill. Notaries also would have to be able to read and write English under the measure.

The Senate has already passed several other bills targeting illegal immigrants, including ones that would: increase penalties for document fraud; require a Georgia driver??ôs license to obtain a Georgia tag; and clarify that judges and parole board members can consider someone??ôs immigration status in their rulings.
